Guest reviewer: Judy

"The Twilight Singers were FAB last week (8/18/04). They did almost every cover
from the new album, with my fave 'What Makes You Think You're The
One' being my standout of the bunch. Whigs songs were 'Uptown Again' and 'Faded'.
The crowd LOVED it and our Greg was in fine form!"

Wish I could have been there!

More on the fabulous Twilight Singers...

I was walking home from the Cornerstone/Fuse party on Monday night (more on that below) right past the Maritime Hotel and had no idea that I was passing the after party for the Vincent Gallo/Chloe Sevigny movie BROWN BUNNY.

New York Times article on it

Wireimage photos here.

Here's a blurb on the Cornerstone party:
"Could they be any more rock? The Libertines are it, end of story. Singer guitarist Carl Barat is a star. Headlining the Cornerstone Player 5th Anniversary Party last night along with The Bravery and Ted Leo and the Pharmacists, the Libs stormed through a set of hits that ran like a NME Top 10 List. Despite not having singer guitarist Pete Doherty with them for the show, the band proved they are more than the drama that is their rock & roll sideshow life.

The tunes are solid. "Can't Stand Me Now", "What A Waster", "Don't Look Back In To The Sun", "Up the Bracket", "Boys In the Band". The attitude is legit. The booze is evident. They live it like they love it. Add to that a lead singer who has jail time on his record and is unable to leave the UK due to charges pending for possession of a knife and you have a taste of the Libertine lore.

Ted Leo and the Pharmacists are the dream three man band. Drums, guitar, bass, beards. They are pros. The Bravery, unsigned and heavily courted, started things off with some electro disco-octave bass lines but ended up more guitar driven by the end of their set. They will be on TRL in about 6 months.

The crowd was packed. Adam Green, James Iha, The Fever, Robbers on High Street, The Sounds, Lyor Cohen, Jason Flom, Steven from FUSE, and the usual industry lackeys pounding free beer and rum at the bar. Members of Saves the Day and Midtown graced the crowd emo-stizz."

I also saw JAMES IHA last night at the Mercury Lounge for the band Robbers On High Street. That man is everywhere!

rock and roll.

I love Cafe Habana in Nolita! Check this out:

"Jared Leto and Scarlett Johansson, who have reportedly been seen together, finally decided to step out in the open with their romance. On Aug. 9, the couple was in New York City, where they openly lingered over lunch at Cafe Habana. A source on the scene says: "They were sitting right by the window holding hands." After lunch, they again walked New York City's streets back to the Mercer Hotel, where they were apparently staying. But maybe all that openness was just too much for them. According to an eye-witness, shortly after they returned to the hotel, they came back downstairs, dressed in different clothes, and Johannson left by herself. Moments later, Leto emerged, hailed a cab and then picked her up just around the corner to elude the paparazzi."
